Gardening Indoors With Compact Spaces
Whether or not your home is blessed with tons of square footage, incorporating greenery is essential to bringing it to life. Indeed, if you are a lover of growing medicinal plants. So don't let a small space or lack of gardening experience stop you from flexing your green thumb inside.
So, below are some tips for you if you want to grow some plants in a limited space:
1. Get A Small Green Wall At Home
They're the big new thing in architecture and interior design, and they're perfect for people who don't have a lot of floor space. They involve an interconnected system of plants that hangs vertically; you'll often see them on the sides of buildings, but they're also available for people on a much smaller budget.
You can make your green own wall with a bit of DIY, some plants and a planter system from a hardware store, or buy an indoor planter kit. If you do buy a kit, make sure that the materials won't leak onto your walls, and obey the watering instructions perfectly.
2. Hang Out
Don’t forget to account for the space you may have access to outside of your home. Build or attach planters to windowsills, and balcony railings to have fresh green growing things right outside. If you have any exterior walls, try affixing old rain gutters and filling them with shallow-rooting plants. Check indoors for any staircase railings that might be ideal for planting boxes.
3. Bring on the sun
It’s no secret that plants need sunlight to live – let’s not forget grade school science class where we learned about photosynthesis. The closer your plants are to natural light the better, but be careful with plants that don’t need sunshine all day long. But, how much light do indoor plants need? For,example, succulents and cacti need continuous, daily sunlight. Plants with foliage need roughly 8 hours of light per day. The amount of light depends on the plants you are growing, so we suggest doing research on the specific plants you are growing.
4. Control the humidity in your space
Plants love moderately humid spaces, but in the winter, much like your skin, they can experience dryness from the lack of moisture. No, you don’t have to apply some sort of miracle plant moisturizer, but it’s wise to keep a humidifier going to maintain a comfortable environment. If you don’t have a humidifier, spray some water onto the plant’s leaves once a week to give them an extra boost of hydration.
5. Do the research
The internet is a big, beautiful thing that has all the answers and info you’d ever need. If you’re thinking about buying a new plant, or have recently brought home the cutest little succulent from the farmer’s market, take the time to look up common care tips for that species. Take the cactus for example. Many assume these types of plants appreciate hot, dry environments — when they actually prefer chilly (yet bright) spaces. A quick Google search will set the record straight for your new leafy friend.
6. Grow Medicinal plants Indoors
If you love both greenery and cooking, indoor medicinal plants gardens can be a godsend. Some shops have a great variety of indoor-growing planters for various edibles, from strawberries to medicinal plants, depending on your light levels. And many website have a great range of affordable indoor planter supplies, though they do presume that you know what you're doing; make your choice depending on your level of garden expertise.
